First published in Sport

SPEEDWAY: The Vortex Lakeside Hammers excellent start to the season continued on Friday with a third successive win.

The Hammers saw off a second half recovery from the Leicester Lions to eventually take all three of the available Elite League points that were available by winning by 52 – 42.

The Vortex Hammers Co Promoter Jon Cook said: "Obviously nine points from three is a dream start but we are only eight days into the new season and we're not going to go making outrageous statements about championships at this stage. In fact I think we're yet to really hit our form despite results. This is shaping up to be a very exciting and difficult season to call already our aim is simply to be in the mix at its conclusion."
